Alpinestars Cape Town Air Drystar Jacket

The Alpinestars Capetown Air Drystar Jacket is a 3/4 length jacket with large mesh panels and a removable Drystar liner. Great for the commuter, tourer or anyone who wants a 3/4 length jacket with a lot of versatility. The Alpinestars Capetown Jacket will provide great coverage through three and a half seasons, but really shine on those hot summer days when you really need the airflow to survive; mesh abounds on this jacket. A waterproof, breathable Drystar liner with an integrated fleece vest ensures solid warmth when the temps begin to dip. The Cape Town Jacket uses Alpinestars proprietary bio armor and comes with a foam back pad and slot for an upgradeable Bionic back protector.

Multi-fabric shell construction for optimal combination of durability, protection and weight. Ballistic nylon reinforced elbows and seat area. Extended mesh areas on chest, sleeves and back for enhanced riding comfort in warmer conditions. 3D padded elbow and shoulder reinforcements. Pre-curved, articulated sleeve construction improves fit and flexibility. Fully adjustable sleeve volume via D-rings on the upper arm and forearm. Oversized D-ring waist adjustment and zippered expansion gussets. Neoprene collar finishing for comfort. Two aerodynamically profiled external chest pockets. Lightweight and removable Drystar® membrane with micro-fleece inserts. Chest and back pad compartments with PE comfort padding (Alpinestars CE certified back protector insert and chest guards available as accessory upgrade).

Alpinestars Cape Town Air Drystar Jacket 4.3 5 14 14
Cuffs, Neck, Biceps, Forearms all TOO SMALL This was my first (and probably last) attempt to buy an Alpinestars jacket. Completely weird fit. I have three other motorcycle jackets from different manufacturers, all size XL, all fit me great. The Alpinestars Capetown Air XL fits me OK in the chest and waist. But the diameter of both the collar and the arms were far too small for me. For example, even with all the velcro unfastened, I could barely get my arms through the sleeves and the cuffs were impenetrable. Attempting to fasten the collar caused mild choking. Suggest potential buyers try these on in person. RevZilla does have good return policies, but I'm still paying UPS ground to return an item that has a totally strange set of proportions. Buyer beware! March 14, 2014
This is an amazing jacket The one problem I am having right now is that it is -40 C were I live , and I have not been able to go riding yet , which is really upsetting , all I am able to do is try the jacket on and look at myself in a mirror.. I will get back to you as soon as I go on my first ride of the year. OH how about our hockey team !! Yours finished what 4th ?? LOL... February 24, 2014
works great for south west. purchased less than a year ago the jacket has seen over 25k miles. jacket works great for life in the south west and short sojourns' out of the area. exceptional breathability with the ability to wear a combo of liners for when it gets cold or for the occasional rain. the jacket has seen temps ranging from 116f down to 35f and has weathered it surprisingly well. some of the features that make it comfortable also end up being detractors. minor short comings is fading in the sun #it's been exposed substantially in the last year# and the fact that it's soft fabric vent panels are obvious weak spots in the case of protection from a get off. a plus would be the fact it does have options for additional armor to help counter this negative to an extent. only annoying aspect is the Velcro on the collar wears on the neck roll/check pad of helmet and catches in annoying manner on occasion. other than that it has served well. I won't be buying another one but for the miles I ride it's time for something that will provide additional protection and durability. can't go wrong with the purchase, especially if on any sort of sale of discount.

Great Jacket for the Price! Bought this on clearance - had a chance to try it yesterday when the temperature was about 40F. The thermal liner kept me comfortable and the jacket kept the wind when riding at bay. Well made - please with this purchase. I would rate this 4-1/2 stars. January 14, 2014
Adequate, Not Great I bought this jacket to replace an excellent Teknic modular that was damaged in a crash. This was the only jacket I could find that's built on a mesh chassis with the option of adding a wind and thermal liner. For $299, it's an acceptable but not great value. But it has some downsides. First, it's polyester. I'd prefer cordura. Second, the zipper system is not the best, especially the way the interior liners work; they're complex and tedious to install and don't appear very robust. Third, the top closure catches across the throat and can be an irritant on a long ride. Lots of Velcro on this jacket and it's already fuzzing and wearing after just two week-long tours. On the plus side, the fit is excellent and they get the cuffs just right to fit under gauntlet gloves. It's also a good looking jacket in high-viz yellow. Not sure I'd buy it again, but would if it was $50 more in cordura, with more snaps and less Velcro. Like so much A-stars stuff, it's well conceived but a little less well executed. Revzilla gets an 11 out 10 for sales on service. August 11, 2013
turing excellent alpinestars jacket type. turing excellent alpinestars jacket type. this is an excellent garment for motocilistas who like long trips and different climates in their travels, offers different types of thermal protection to incorporate two lainer tional to its interior. is comfortable and very functional. July 22, 2013
Nice jacket Overall a very good jacket. Some issues with the size it feels small and if you put on the two linners in, it colud be very tight. The collar is a little too high for my taste and a little too tight when fully closed. Very good air flow Good sized pockets. Good quality easy to use zippers May 16, 2013
Good all around jacket After a year of wear in all kinds of conditions I'm very pleased with this product. I've worn it in 100 degree heat, in temps down to 45 with both liners, in the rain and was comfortable. It is water proof and with a heated vest instead of the fleece liner I'm sure it would be good to 30. The only thing I don't like is the weight with the optional chest and back protectors in but when on the bike I don't really notice and I like the extra protection. April 25, 2013

SuperFLY91: You should try ICON directly for that one...I doubt any vendors will sell them seperately, but ICON customer service might help. If not, you might be able to find something from Northface or Gander Mountain to wear underneath...good luck! Oct 30, 2012
